I think I learned the most when we were given time to work on something by ourselves for a little while after doing exercises together. I noticed that others seem to be somewhat mindless typing in the commands since they have a hard time keeping up. Having time to work on things on our own would at minimum would let us know whether we understand what's really going on.

The time given to follow hands-on is sometimes too short.
The 800X600 projector does not provide much space to show different things. When we show the result of a command we also need to see the syntax of the command, especially when we are still typing it.

This course is very informative for the purpose it is designed for. Instructors were very candid, experienced, helpful and interactive throughout the course. Following improvements are recommended:
1. Course duration might be expanded to another 2 weeks ( with less time per day) to cover the same quantum and quality information. At least 30 min to 1 hour may be dedicated to review exercises completed by each participant. This extra time could accommodate need of individual participants to make the experience more useful.
2. Solved exercises similar to the given ones may be posted to provide additional helpline.

This course was taught incredibly incorrectly. We are supposed to be beginning computer programmers, but the instructors saw fit to belabor numerous unimportant points (It will be a long, long time before I need to know the intimate details of compiling a program from scratch, yet we wasted some 45 minutes on the minutiae). Additionally, the class seemed taught as a stream-of-consciousness, instead of with a cohesive and logical structure. Day-to-day strategy seemed logical enough, but topics covered every day seemed more a shotgun approach than anything else. Overall, I gained very little from this class aside from a basic ability to navigate Linux command line, and a slight understanding of R, neither of which are very useful in a vacuum. It certainly doesn't help that you jump around to random example after random example, with useless exercises in between (this is a programming class, I do not need a lecture on statistics or DNA sequencing).

This was a wonderful course. I came with no background in computing, and was pretty nervous (and feeling a bit "in over my head") when i started this course. Yet, the instructors knew how to relate this intimidating topic in a way that made computing approachable. I learned so much from this course, and would highly recommend it to others. The instructors were knowledgeable and entertaining. Two thumbs up!
